Hello there!


My name is Chiara Molla (she/her)

and I am a student intern meaning I have completed my schooling for my Master's Program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and I am on the last part where I work directly with clients under the supervision of Micheline Maalouf for training purposes. My expected graduation is December 2022 and I am excited to become an official part of the Serein Counseling team. 

In my late 20’s, I decided to start going to my own therapy and it is something I wish I would have done much sooner. Right from the beginning of session, I felt I had found my purpose. All along I just needed someone to talk to, someone that would help me understand certain aspects about myself and someone that would help me learn skills to cope with the daily issues I was facing. And this is exactly what I want to provide to my clients. A respectful, compassionate and free from judgement space, where we begin a collaborative journey to live a more meaningful life. I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor Student Intern, completing my Masters of Science at Capella University. I have training in  Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) which is my main therapeutic modality. I am also a certified yoga teacher (E-RYT 200) which comes in handy when we work on the somatic aspects of anxiety and trauma. I can help you build comfort within yourself and surroundings to ease the symptoms you have been struggling with.   

Some fun facts about me: I grew up in 3 different countries (U.S., Germany and Peru). I also went to India to get certified to teach yoga. When I am not working, you will find me spending time with my daughter, meeting with friends for coffee, or watching a crime documentary!
